Thailand is acknowledged as one of the most open-minded countries in Asia regarding homosexuality. Thais are private people, and similarly don’t generally interfere or judge how others live. As the Thais are fond of saying, “It’s up to you.”
In Phuket, we only really have 2 seasons. They’re called by a variety of names – the dry season and the wet season, the hot season and the rainy season or monsoon season, and the high season and low season.
Phuket is a great destination for anyone eager to get fit as it offers heaps of activities and sports, along with meditation and health treatments. Whether your thing is running, swimming, cycling, MMA, yoga or lifting weights, then you can do it here on our beautiful island.
